Sorry, I was saying that I wanted the Evolv ATX for the 3x120mm capabilities in the front until I learned that the Pro M's ODD cage could be removed for the same capabilities. That and the better airflow capabilities smile.gif. When I was first researching cases, I didn't realize they were the same inner chassis either tongue.gif.

Yeah, they are both quite low pressure, especially at low speed. F140SP is 1.33mm H2O compared to R2's 0.84mm H2O (0.54 @ 800rpm) or Aeroshark's 1.07mmH2O (0.3mm H2O @ 800rpm). Better fans with sutomatic speed control so they cycle with coolers and you will be set. thumb.gif

It's not fully behind the ODD slot or away from the side vents, but it's enough so that it's not getting as much air as possible. Thoughts on that approach? It'll determine weather I buy 3x120SPs or 2x140SPs smile.gif.

Silly doyll, drugs are for kids....

But I bolded it for you wink.gif. I'm just concerns that top 120mm would be somewhat of a waste. I positioned both of my 140s for some airflow to the bottom, and probably 75% of the fan surface area for airflow to my GPUs and CPU cooler. (You can click on the rig 'Lydia' in my sig)

Just ordered myself a second MCP655 for this case. Already have a pump top lying around so I didn't need to buy that. Going to use the EK uni brackets to mount it to the bottom radiator. Might even move my res down there too. Should look pretty nice and increase head pressure a bit.

I suspect 3x 120mm would not do as well as 2x 140mm for the reasons you mentioned. Keep in mind 2x 140mm fans perform same as 3x 120mm fans of same design, and usually are a little quieter doing it.

Time to make a test bench then!

Agreed. But, keep in mind the split in the Evolv ATX/Pro M. With the two 140mm, you can raise them to get all of the airflow into the main chamber, which would be 25% more than the ~2.25 of the 120mm that are exposed to the main chamber. You do sacrifice airflow to the HDD by doing that, though. You can mount an 80mm fan below the two 140mm to handle that.

I figured as much smile.gif. I'm very happy with the setup and while I haven't fine tuned the fans, I'm not bothered one bit by the extra noise compared to the cooling performance I'm getting biggrin.gif. I'll probably order a couple 140mm SPs for the Mini ITX build now tongue.gif.

Yep. I feel like 75% is a good estimate of what I've got going to the top chamber, if not a tad bit more in my situation. I only have one drive below with plans for another to go down there, but I think the highest temp I've seen on the HDD was 36C?

That and some 3d modeling smile.gif




Here is a VERY ROUGH mock up in Sketchup of some of the rads/mobo/cards, etc. Feel free to use as needed (combo of files found online). Google Drive download link here.

I can refine a whole lot more as its pretty sloppy and I just started messing with sketchup yesterday lol.


Parts:
  • Alpha Cool 360x30 xflow Radiator
  • Alpha Cool 240x45 xflow Radiator
  • Clear PETG
  • EK-FB ASUS M8G Monoblock
  • EK 1080 water block or EVGA hydrocoper (not added yet)
  • XSPC 170 res/d5 pump combo

I almost did a full custom loop but man I have a 18 month old toddler and she makes it hard for me to close my office door for long periods of time so i did a simple yet clean build. I'm happy! I'll do a custom loop one day tho!
